Add the apples and cook for a further 10 minutes, or until the apples are soft and the onions are tender. Stir in the brown sugar and a little salt to taste.

6. Transfer the pork chops to a heated serving dish and pour the juices from the casserole over them. Garnish with the cooked apple and onion mixture and flat-leaved parsley, if wished. Serve immediately.
